Energy Star-qualified, Champion’s UH230B undercounter high-temperature dishmachine features a built-in electric booster heater for 180˚F final rinse water. With a 90-sec. total cycle time, the unit has a capacity of 40 racks/hr. and a final rinse consumption of 0.78 gal./rack (23.4 gal./hr.).

Electrolux’s WT30 undercounter dishmachine is now Energy Star-qualified. The unit features a built-in booster heater that raises incoming 110˚F water to 180˚F for the sanitizing final rinse. The dishmachine features 208V-240V, single- or 3-phase operation with 3 automatic 120-, 180- or 240-sec. cycles. At 0.89 gal./rack, the unit has a maximum capacity of 30 racks/hr. The Wash Safe Control LED supplies a green-light visual cue that all washed items have been sanitized. The wash pump’s soft start protects delicate items. A counterbalanced door is equipped with springs to lighten the impact of opening and closing. 


Hobart’s Advansys LXeR high-temperature undercounter dishmachine features Energy Recovery technology that recycles hot water vapor produced during the wash and rinse cycle to preheat cold inlet water, significantly reducing steam release when the door is opened and lowering overall energy consumption. Little steam makes it ideal for customer areas, such as bars. Choose from light-, medium and heavy-duty cycles; the latter has an NSF pot-and-pan rating. The dishmachine can handle up to 30 racks/hr. using 0.62 gal./rack. Based on an energy audit, the unit can save up to $485/year in reduced energy and HVAC costs based on 60 cycles/day. The unit was an NRA Kitchen Innovations award winner in 2013.
